    On Live With Kelly and Ryan, Gwendoline revealed, "This season is such an intense, emotional roller coaster. And what Game of Thrones is really famous for is it creates the unexpected. Everything you thought you knew about people is turned on its head. But, this season, they've gone somewhere else." She continued, "What I'm really happy about is we've seen Brienne develop, this character develop in many different ways, but now what we see is Brienne the woman, making her own choices and taking control of her life, and responding to her own wants and desires, rather than just being in service of someone else."

    Also on Live With Kelly and Ryan, Kit said, "These six episodes are going to, I think, change the way you look at TV, and I think they're going to be sensational. They're huge. The one thing I feel right now is that we put everything we could into this. So, we're just proud of it now. I think it's going to be sensational."

    On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Dwyane said, "I didn't do that on purpose. I had shot, like, a little fadeaway shot in that corner and the ball went in and out, so I was really focused and looking and when I turned around and saw who it was I was like, 'Oh my goodness.' I couldn't believe it was them."

    4. Justin Hartley talked about getting mistaken for Ryan Reynolds.

    On Live With Kelly and Ryan, Justin told the story: "So, this woman thought I was Ryan Reynolds...so I try to have a kind heart and I'm looking at this woman, and she is looking at me like my wife looks at me sometimes. ... It dawns on me that she thinks I'm Ryan Reynolds ... and I didn't have it in my heart to tell her, 'I'm not Ryan Reynolds,' because I didn't want to break her heart. So I didn't say I was, but I just kind of [nods along] ... I told my friend, 'I'm going to get out of here real quick, just so she has that moment.' But, as I'm leaving ... her friend must've looked over and said, 'That's not Ryan Reynolds. That's that idiot from This Is Us.' And, I went to wave to her as I was leaving and she was just like [stone-faced]."

    5. Lizzo discussed being labeled as "body-positive."

    On The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, Lizzo said, "I think it's so interesting that now body positivity is this buzzing term — there's no term for body negativity, because it's the norm, it's what we expect. So, at this point, I realize that my mere existence is a form of activism, especially in the body-positive community ... but I'm nobody's celebrity totem."

    6. Scarlett Johansson talked about getting matching tattoos with the Avengers cast...minus Mark Ruffalo.

    On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Scarlett talked about how she and Chris Evans came up with the idea for the original six Avengers to get matching tattoos. She said, "We all have it, but Mark does not have it." Robert Downey Jr. chimed in, "He declined...at his own peril." Scarlett continued, "I guess he said yesterday that he's afraid of needles. But, he didn't say that before. It just seemed like he was really judgmental," she joked.

    On Busy Tonight, Mandy Moore discussed the fan reactions to her reunion with Shane West when she received her star on the Walk of Fame. She said, "I know that it had been years since we'd done anything together and really been out in the world together, so I knew that it might be a bit of a moment, I guess. But, people loved it. They love that movie. Like, gosh...it came out in 2002? It's found a new generation of people that love it, too."

    8. Kate Hudson opened up about her three kids, including her six-month-old daughter.

    On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star talked about watching Mad Men, which went off the air four years ago. She said, "I actually just recently started going back and watching it from the beginning because it felt like the right time, it felt like I had enough time off and could watch it, sort of, from a different perspective. And, wow, the show's good, man! I mean, I knew it was good, but, it's just I feel so proud to be a part of it. I feel like now I'm an actual fan of the show, which is amazing. I forgot that I was in it when watching it!"
